Overview

About the property

Villa, 6 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 13)

Wow, what a view, is what everyone says upon entering Bella Dama.

She is tailored to meet all of your expectations of a Caribbean vacation getaway. Our friendly staff will do their best to accommodate everyone in the group. We have one of the largest private swimming pools in Cabarete. Plenty of outdoor furniture and floats. A wonderful gazebo for resting or dining, outdoor massage anyone? Many places to relax with a cocktail or just take in the energy of this fantastic island.

We maintain the home to the highest of standards, as this is our second home, as well as available for rent. We will only rent to family groups. All age children are welcome!

We have accommodated large parties, weddings, anniversaries, and family reunions. Bella Dama is one of the only single family homes available this close to the beach. The views of the ocean are tremendous shades of blue and green. There are no rocks or coral as you swim in front of the property.

There are six well sized bedrooms in total. We have a solid mahogany dining table, 2 living rooms, and family room. Separate large kitchen with all the spices and condiments for your use.

The top level has the master bedroom with king size bed and bath with jetted tub. His and her vanities. Excellent balcony with ocean view. The motif is tropical and breezy.

The second oceanfront bedroom also has a balcony, queen size bed, and its own bath. The third bedroom is decorated in oriental, a queen bed and bath.

Travel down the spiral staircase to your entertainment area for the entire family. Pool table, flat screen television, DVD and board games use of wireless Internet. three bedrooms more, 2 kings and one queen. (One of the King bedrooms has an additional twin bed in room.

If you are not familiar with Cabarete, or the Dominican Republic, there is plenty to see, do and explore. And, if haven't heard, we are a world renowned water sports location. Kite surfing, sailing, windsurfing, wakeboarding, to name just a few.

The people in the Dominican are incredibly friendly folk. Their language is Spanish, but they try very hard to talk with you, in English.

The Dominican Republic is a incredibly lush country with long soft beaches and rolling mountains with the clearest blue rivers you have ever seen. The Caribbean also offers the freshest fruits and vegetables, seafood and spices. You will want to take home some natural vanilla, natural sugar, cigars and last but not forgotten, Dominican Coffee! (cheap prices)

Meet our staff:

Jackie is our property manager, American, and will help you with making any day trip plans. She can also arrange a private chef or homemade Dominican dishes to be prepared in your villa.

With all larger groups, we have a second housekeeper.. All of our employees have been with use many years, and are very trust worthy.

Our gardener and pool person Richard, keeps the pool sparkling clean and the grounds in tip top shape. At night we employ a security guard, Henri. Henri is there so that you may enjoy a relaxing and restful vacation, with no safety concerns.

Finally, but by far my most loyal and hardest working employee is "Bella". Bella is our pet/watchie dog. She is very friendly to our guests and family. She is an outdoor dog. I explain this in advance just in case there is someone in the group that does not like dogs.

I have mentioned just a sample of our property and Cabarete. Please feel free to call and ask any questions or concerns you may have.

We are want you to feel very at home. me casa, su casa!

About Vickie Keller

Our Villa was completed in 2005. We are constantly upgrading and maintaining, as we use the home as often as possible, and want our guests to feel very comfortable and at home. Our main residence is in Pennsylvania, USA. We are fairly well traveled, and feel the Dominican Republic is one of the most beautiful islands we have had the pleasure to visit.

Vickie Keller purchased this villa in 2005

Why Vickie Keller chose Cabarete

We can easily access our home from Puerto Plata airport, only 20 minutes away. Cabarete is an exciting town where there is always something happening. My dream has always been to own a home on a Caribbean beach. Cabarete is one of the hottest spots in the world for water sports. Our winds are great, and waters clean and clear.

What makes this villa unique

You open your gate, and you are on the beach! Warm soft sand under your feet. The view is breathtaking! Relax and be mesmerized by the charm of the ocean. What more could I say.

Big, comfortable house with fantastic pool

  • 5 of 5

Along with another family, we stayed at this house over Semana Santa. It was extremely comfortable for all 10 of us, with enough bedrooms and space to hang out. Both upstairs and downstairs are very nice and beds are comfy, but upstairs feels more elegant and is much lighter. The house has fantastic views and a gorgeous pool. The weather was actually pretty stormy while we were there so we did not use the gazebo as much as expected but the house was big enough that even in bad weather we were all happy. The house is very nicely furnished and well stocked with kitchen equipment, towels, etc. The house is a great place to be with a group who wants to hang out together. It is about 1 mile from the main beach in Cabarete and you would probably want to drive to go to the restaurants there. When the tide is low, you can walk along the beach to the main beach as well but it takes 20 minutes or so. There are many excursions possible by car. We walked a lot on the beach and also rode horses from the house -- beautiful!

In arranging the rental, Vickie was extremely responsive and helpful in response to inquiries. The staff at the house (especially Mathilda and Richard) were excellent. We had minor problems like an air conditioner not working but the staff got it fixed promptly. The manager was new and we didn't see him much. The only thing I would suggest is that the manager could be a little more proactive in explaining about tips, how much to pay staff for extra work, recommending things to do, etc. We managed it fine, but we live in the DR and speak Spanish. Mathilda cooked most dinners for us and they were fantastic.

Cabarete is a great place to go with kids, esp teenagers, as there are many sports offered. We didn't do too many excursions due to the bad weather, but we did go to Sosua and we also rented stand-up paddleboards at Cabarete beach. Our kids were in the pool every free minute. I would definitely recommend this house for a larger group. Thanks, Vickie, for a fantastic vacation!

Amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Bella Dama is absolutely gorgeous villa with a nice size swimming pool and 6 stunning bedrooms! Each room is very tastefully decorated and very clean, also almost each room has a big bathroom. The villa is more beautiful in person. It offers Wi-Fi as well. I've used my kindle there with no problem. Villa has upper and lower floor, it's quiet and very relaxing. On upper floor is balcony where u can have your morning coffee or tea and watch the ocean sing. Also if you have kids you can watch them swim in the pool. This was my third stay and I'm definitely going back! You can walk on the beach or horse back ride. I did it all! :) All in all I would recommend if you are visiting Cabarete, DR this is the place you will definitely love. It safe, quiet, spacious and very clean. I have visited it with friend and also a family, it suits both occasions. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did !!

Our recent stay in Cabarete

  • 5 of 5

We are just back one day and already my family is asking "when are we going back?" This was our first time renting overseas but I can't imagine ever going back to a commercial resort property when our every desire was met at this lovely, spacious and sparkling home. The staff (Myra, Jackie, Henry, Richard and Saundra) was so wonderful. They provided the perfect balance between relaxation and activities. The 4 children (16-10) has plenty of things to do (horseback riding, snorkeling, tennis, pool, ocean, bonfire) while the parents had plenty of relaxation (massages, prepared dinners, great restaurant recommendations, and plenty of beverages). Jackie’s recommendations and arrangements were spot on and very much appreciated. And, to top it off, the addition of Marco and Polo, the puppies, made this Christmas one we will long remember.

Owner's Response: Dear Beth, The staff said your family was a pleasure to work for. They are welcome back anytime! Bella, Marco and Polo send their best. I am so happy everyone enjoyed their holiday! Cabarete is such a happening place. Incredible weather, water and sun! The villa has plenty of space for everyone. It’s centrally located to town and shopping. We too enjoy staying in private villas and homes when traveling abroad. Hotels have their place for the average traveler. To really see and feel the culture of the destination, you must wander out of the all inclusive hotel walls. Explore the country's heritage, try the local cuisine, and meet the friendly people. My family has been coming to the Dominican Republic for over 15 years. It still amazes me, every time we visit. There's something for everyone here. It’s finding treasures of amber or driftwood on the beach, a sunrise, a sunset. The most fantastic massage of your life… we love you Morana! I meet people all the time that say they would like to visit the Dominican Republic. They've heard good things about it. I tell them to come on down, the water’s fine. I love making believers out of them. Respectfully, Vickie Keller

wonderful, great time

  • 5 of 5

Very nice, clean villa, we spent great time in the villa, with marvellous oceanview, the breeze and sunsets, or just sitting at the pool area with a nice cold drink.

To the center of Cabarete a short walk right at the beach possible. Cabarete is the place for kite and windsurfers, many restaurants and shops. We liked very much the Nicki Beach, with the Sushi or just beside the Laax with the Banana Mama... In the supermarket

"Janet" you find every morning fresh bread and all you need. There are driving the Mototaxi, they bring you where ever you want for a small amount of money.

We would come back any time and recommend the villa. Thank you

Absolutely Gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in your lovely villa April 17th thru the 30th of this year. We had such a beautiful and wonderful experience that I can't find the words to tell you. Your villa as you call it was a beach front mansion to my husband and myself. I felt like we were on our second honeymoon. My husband just absolutely loved the walk on the beach and then coming back and relaxing by the pool. This was truly a vacation of a lifetime and we will be back again and again. Thank you Vickie and Glenn for a wonderful vacation.
